Detailed Product Description



SIGNED on the title page by Hermann Buhl. Buhl was able to sign very few copies of this book before he left to do the first ascent of Broad Peak with Kurt Diemberger, and then fall to his death on Chogolisa. Buhl's signature is one of the scarcest of the climbers of 8000 Meter Peaks, and this is only the third copy we have had in 35 years!

Munchen, Nymphenburger Verlagshandlung, 1954, true first edition. 360 pp, 20 photos. In German. Hermann Buhl was one of the greatest Alpine and Himalayan climbers of all time, who made the first ascent of Nanga Parbat solo and without oxygen. One of the classics of the literature. He died while descending from Chogolisa with Diemberger. Condition is Fine, with a Near Fine, Unchipped Dust Jacket. (See a scan of the book cover w/o dust jacket below.)

Hermann Buhl (September 21, 1924 - June 27, 1957) is considered one of the best post-war Austrian climbers and one of the best climbers of all time. His accomplishments include:1953 First ascent of Nanga Parbat, 8,125 metres (26,658 ft.) 1957 First ascent of Broad Peak, 8,047 metres (26,400 ft.) Before his successful Nanga Parbat expedition, 31 people had already died trying to make the first ascent. Buhl is the only mountaineer to have made the first ascent of an Eight-thousander solo. Just a few weeks after their success on Broad Peak, Buhl and Kurt Diemberger attempted nearby Chogolisa peak (7,654 metres). Buhl died when he fell through a cornice on the SE ridge near the summit of Chogolisa. His body has never been found.
